Dear Editor,

I read with some concern the article about the City Council "reassigning" the committees Mr. Boeger represented.  The Council, of course, has the authority to take such action regardless of who agrees or disagrees with the assignments.

What is considerably disturbing about the information in the article is the paragraph advising "It had previously been decided by council members that Styles would take over. . ." etc."  Our concern (collectively) should be when was that "previously decided" decision made.  I do not recall any public discussion of the matter. If the decision was made between the council members in private conversation there certainly is a "perceived" possible violation of the open and public provisions of the Brown Act.  Perhaps the Fair Political Practices Commission could advise on the issue. 

Sincerely,
Jack Storne, Sr.
